Location of Mac Joystick/Keyboard Preferences?

3 posts in this topic

So, anyone know in which directory the keyboard preferences are saved?

(https://wiki.wwiionline.com/view/Keymapper was no help; it seems to have the old information.)

In OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard-- the last time I played), the directory was:

/Users//Library/Preferences/ww2ol/cfml

And inside there would be xml files:

air.cfml
atgun.cfml
.
.
.
us-bazooka.cfml
views.cml

Now, in OS X 10.11.1 (El Capitan), running latest WW2OL (1.34.13), I cannot find the right directory to place these files.

I tried making sample change in-game, and seeing which files changed, but was unable to locate the directory...

Of course, if the codebase has radically changed such that very old keyboard prefs are obsolete and untransferable, that would be good to know also.

Little help?

It looks like a developer typo (a missing '/' in the pathname) set the new location to '/Users//Library/Preferences/ww2olcfml/'.

Thanks! The problem I was being thrown off by the fact that in OS X 10.11.1 the Library directory isn't readable with the Finder app.

Not sure anyone else will have this problem, but for posterity, if you're migrating keyboard/JS prefs

from older OS X version and want to use Finder to transfer the files:

Open a Terminal window and type:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES; killall Finder

Then, open a Finder window and transfer the old cfml files into /Users//Library/Preferences/ww2olcfml/

To return your Finder to normal mode, type in the Terminal window:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO; killall Finder
